Counting

In Buddhist scripture we use some astrological description. We describe the empty mind in various ways. We calculate the big mind is some astrologically great number -- so great that we cannot count. It means to give up calculating. If it is so many you will lose your interest in counting it and you will eventually give up counting. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 66-11-30 as found on shunryusuzuki.comEdited by DC - Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on cuke.com - from there links to much more. - Go to cuke.com What's New [now at blogger] to see more daily posts.
